Carrying the right amount of weight to prevent yourself from being too buoyant is very important whilst diving. Getting the right weight is key to any successful dive as you need to counter act the buoyancy of your drysuit or wetsuit with the buoyancy of the rest of your kit to allow you to sink enough to part take in the dive. However, too much weight will prevent you from being able to rise again so a happy medium is essential.

These dive weights and weight belts can help you hone your buoyancy control so you can get your neutral buoyancy spot on. We have solid lead, soft lead, ankle weights, and weights that integrate directly to your BCD. We have versatile weight vests that are great for freediving and spearfishing. Quickly releasing your weights can even turn them into a safety device in an emergency.

For a helpful guide to choosing the best diving weight system, please see The Scuba Doctor's Dive Weights Buying Guide. For help on how to figure out how much lead you need, please see our Perfect Scuba Diving Weighting guide.
